  1. It still hard to believe you’re gone but, at least now you don’t have to suffer anymore. You were such a great friend and we will miss not seeing you or talking with you. You always had a great story to share or a joke or both. My daughters love the necklaces and hold them dear to their hearts. We love you and will miss you “old man”. You were a great friend and won’t be forgotten. RIP.

  2. Seldom on life’s path are we privileged to meet someone who makes you feel better simply because you are around him. Dave was such a man–giving, thoughtful, decent and gracious. Like he did for so many other outdoor communicators, he made my life better and my work easier. He was a great friend and a wonderful human being. I will miss him greatly as will my wife.

  5. Bell & Associates sends their sympathies to family and friends. My best memories are of that wonderful “voice” of BPI. We will miss you Dave.

  6. My heartfelt and deepest sympathies to Leanne, Kelly, Jordan and Tyler. Dave was a friend to all and so beloved within his extended family in the outdoor industry. Like so many, I will miss his smiling face and cherished friendship. May he rest in peace.

  7. We want to extend our deepest sympothy at the loss of your father. Ron and I share your sorrow and want you to know what a wonderful friend Dave was to us. So generous and thoughtful, he never missed an opportunity to laugh and bring joy to everyone around him. We will miss him terribly.

  8. A few years back Dave knew I was traveling cross country pulling a boat to a fishing tournament. He called my cell phone, telling me he was the highway patrol dispatch, that I was going so fast the trooper couldn’t catch up to give me my ticket. I pulled over thinking I really wasn’t going that fast. Dave laughed, finally giving himself away and never let me forget the day he out foxed me once again. His laugh, his thoughtfulness, his good will. Damn, I miss him. God bless you, Dave.

  9. My deepest sympathy for your loss. There are no words … only the grace of God. David was a prince -one of the kindest men I’ve ever known. He was a rock for me, often, when I needed support. He cared. And indeed, he was perhaps the most positive person to have walked the earth. He was gracious in life, courageous and positive until our last chat. God bless you and God welcome Dave home.

  10. Those we love don’t go away,
    they walk beside us every day,
    unseen,unheard, but always near,
    still loved, still missed and very dear.

    Our condolences to your family.

    Michele and Alan Vinson

  11. Our condolences to the family. Dave was a true friend to so many and will be deeply missed by Karen and me. Karen still wears the ring Dave made for her. Dave said he kept the quilt she made for him on his recliner. Rest in peace, old friend.

  12. Dave touched the lives of so many people. He will always be fondly remembered for his endearing, selfless nature and good humor. Personally, and on behalf of Dave’s SEOPA family, I offer sincere condolences.

  13. Dave was one of the most wonderful people I will ever know – a truly selfless, giving and positive human being who woke up every day saying, “If I can make just one person smile today, I’ve had a great day.” When I last talked with him after his surgery just days before he passed, he told me not to worry because he was feeling “just great.” That was Dave – a man whose strength of spirit remains an example for all. He enjoyed playing “Secret Santa” year round. He always had a great recipe to share and enjoyed making trains and jewelry. He was so proud of his work with CVA and the outdoor writing community, but we’re the ones who were proud just in knowing him and calling him friend. I will miss our talks and his cheery e-mails. He was a patriot with three Purple Hearts who loved his country. Above all, he loved Leann, Kelly, Jordan and Tyler. My heart goes out to you. Please know that while Dave has passed from our sight he will be in our hearts forever.
